Unconditional Devotion

Unconditional Devotion

“I see you have bunny ears growing out of your head. It’s strange...but, ok by me.” 

“You’re heart is exposed and aflame. Passionate and Vulnerable. I like it.” 

A friendship with unconditional devotion accepts who we are as we are. Little children are so good at this. They love discovering what is different about each other without passing judgement. Without deeming our particular, or peculiar, traits as good or bad.

If we could all be so devoted to our friendships, dispensing acceptance not assessments. If we saw our individual uniqueness as a cause to celebrate, not criticize. Would we be more willing to follow our own path and learn more fully the lessons life has to teach us? Could we gain more from each other and find harmony and beauty all around as we are encircled in love?
